Hopefully, more and more people are becoming aware of the dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)and genetically engineered crops and foods. These are poisons that end up in our land, our food, our water, and our crops.
It all started out innocently enough with attempts to kill pests in crops. But the effort has mushroomed into a hideous monster spreading across the globe. Some think that the major thrust behind this world food domination is the chemical giant based in ST. Louis, MIssouri – the MONSANTO CO.
Only problem, those seeds are modified. Modified in ways our bodies do not like. Side effects include miscarriages and infertility, among many other problems. Monsanto is poisoning our food on a global scale. The company has devised an insidious, but simple plan – monopolize world-wide seed distribution. Everything we grow will eventually be effected directly or indirectly by Monsanto genetically engineered crops.
The Chinese Army has outlawed GMOs for its soldiers. Russia has forbidden them in baby foods.
As I try to eat more and more healthy foods, I’ve cut WAY back on packaged foods – I’ve read the ingredients labels. But it requires a keen eye, lots of study, and a willingness to travel to genuine HEALTH food stores to buy organic (non-GMO) foods. It costs more. It is easier to just grab produce off the shelves at Walmart.
It would be a whole lot easier if food packagers were a little more truthful about what is in that granola. Even lawmakers who have taken up the cause are fighting an uphill battle against Giant Monsanto. Here is how Jeffrey Smith explained it on last nights COAST TO COAST AM radio show with George Noory.

In the first half of Monday’s show, author and consumer activist Jeffrey Smith discussed the breaking news surrounding the debate around GMO (genetically engineered) crops and foods and their potential health hazards. While Vermont is the first state in the US to pass a labeling bill requiring foods to list GMO ingredients, they were recently sued by Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association, who challenged the law’s constitutionality. Vermont’s Gov. Peter Shumlin has announced the creation of a crowdfunding website to raise funds against the lawsuit, Smith detailed. In other news, the USDA announced that genetically engineered wheat escaped a field trial in the Western US, and it could possibly contaminate non-GMO crops, he noted.
There are non-GMO methods to maximize yields and feed the world’s hungry, but they don’t provide money to the industrial agricultural giants that sell the fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and genetically engineered feeds, and control the advertising market in the US for their products, he remarked. According to Smith, he’s talked to hundreds of people who’ve had symptoms such as gastrointestinal problems go away or get better when they’ve switched to a non-GMO diet. Recent GMO studies include one of pigs in Australia who were fed genetically modified food and ended up with inflamed, ulcerated stomachs (the researcher was attacked and is having trouble continuing the work), and a study in Moscow that found by the third generation of hamsters being fed GMO soy, they’d become sterile and had birth defects, he cited.
